Before Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) candidates may be assessed for certification at an Assessment, they must participate in the appropriate ICP Workshop(s). ICP Workshop hosts are wonderful people who offer up their farms and volunteer their organizational skills to make these required ICP Workshops available to candidates, and the ICP is grateful for hosts’ commitment to high-quality instruction and to the many participating ICP candidates.

Audience members, as well as the riders, listened very closely as Aaron Vale taught 19 rider and horse pairs in the new Grand Prix show jump arena at Longwood. His focus on those riders and their horses was consummate. The exercises he chose and the directive, corrective, and complimentary words he expressed moment-by-moment said it all.
Sue Hershey was in attendance for the 2014 ICP Ocala Symposium at Longwood Farm South, February 10-11, and provided an in-depth recap of the lessons that Canadian international dressage rider Jacqueline Brooks taught.
Well-known American jumper competitor and instructor Anne Kursinski rides more as a zen master than as a dictator. While she is riding and jumping, her body is flexible yet still, her legs are close and quiet, her arms are following. She teaches, too, like a Zen master: with few, but exacting, words. Always observant, Anne invites her riders to sense through their bodies their relationship to the horse and to their united movement over the ground.
